COUNTDOWN TO TERROR – The New Alex Swan Mystery

Introducing the latest Alex Swan Mystery thriller
Available soon

Amid the legion of German rocket scientists and engineers, captured after the war in Europe, lurk members of a secret Nazi order. Their mission: to strike at the heart of post-war rocket programmes of the United States, USSR and Great Britain.
It is now 1969, and on the bank of the River Thames in London, an ex-Nazi rocket scientist, now working at a top secret rocket test site on the Isle of Wight, is left dying after being shot.
During their enquiries, ex MI5 officer: Alex Swan and his former Scotland Yard detective associate: Arthur Gable, discover a plot to sabotage Britain’s first satellite launch vehicle: Black Arrow.
However, could it be possible that this is not the only current space programme, of which the The Onyx Cross have set their destructive intentions?

Research Summer

Summer is almost here and holiday time beckons. I will be heading to the Isle of Wight and to the Needles Batteries of which the old rocket site at High Down, features in the first part of my second novel in the Alex Swan Mystery series: Countdown to Terror. I have put aside my research for my third novel, so that I can concentrate on this over the long break, armed with my subject specific non-fiction books and my chosen fiction for the themes which I will be featuring in the new novel. My trusty writing case will also be accompanying me so that I can make those crucial notes and chapter plans ready for a September kick-off with the manuscript.
I find that when I’m out and about like this, my imagination runs riot with ideas for either this novel or future novels in the series
I will also be visiting Dover Castle as I have decided to include a scene that includes a chase through the labyrinth of underground tunnels there.
